If you’ve decided on tooth replacement, it is an intelligent decision—both for your smile aesthetics and oral health.
Tooth replacement can improve your self-esteem by giving you a smile you’re proud of. Additionally, a dental bridge prevents tooth migration—the act of natural teeth shifting into a welcoming smile gap. Tooth migration can lead to future tooth loss through wear and tear.
Our dental practice offers various tooth replacement options, including dental bridges in Champaign, IL.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is an artificial tooth or teeth housed between dental crowns. The crowns cap the healthy tooth to the left and right of your smile gap, allowing the restoring tooth or teeth to fill in the space. The dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic that can only be removed by your dentist.
Your dental bridge can last for a decade or longer—sometimes much longer.
Tips for longevity include:
- Keeping your bridge clean with a floss threader and special cleaning brush
- Keeping your natural teeth healthy through brushing, flossing, and a healthy diet
- Visiting your Champaign, IL dentist every six months for checkups and teeth cleanings
